Ashittey Ollenu completed a transfer from Hearts of Oak to Asante Kotoko at the beginning of the 2017 season with high hopes of living to the promise which only came in flashes during his Hearts of Oak time.
The winger, blessed with pace and close control, was the toast of many Kotoko fans with a large section trooping to see his first few training sessions.
His first few games brought confidence to the Porcupine Warriors who felt they have a man capable of unlocking several defenses in the league.
His early partnership with Emmanuel Gyamfi did not bring a lot of goals but the entertainment value could not be overlooked.
Ollenu, alongside Gyamfi, terrorized and harassed opposing defenders but his joy has been short-lived with an injury.
He has failed to recover from this injury but Charles Taylor, who used a similar career route as Ollenu, moving from Hearts to Kotoko believes the winger’s injury is beyond physical.
For the former Ghanaian goal king, the Phobians are more than capable of destroying careers.
” I can say without mincing a word that Hearts of Oak are behind Ollenu Ashitey’s injury,” he told Kumasi-based Light FM.
”Ollenu needs to react quickly in curbing this unpleasant injury situation in his playing career. He should either resort to a serious training or embark on a spiritual work by seeking for a divine intervention from an abling man of God.”
”Things could move from bad to worse if Ollenu fails to act quickly in arresting this predicament in his playing career,” he noted.
”They [Hearts of Oak] are a club one needs to be very cautious with as they are capable of destroying people’s careers.”
”If you a player plying trade with them and it happens that you want to move to Kotoko knowing very well that you are one of their outstanding players, they will do everything possible to cripple you down with bad spirit.”
”We have some evil men in their midst who always met out such wicked treatments to players who would want to join Kotoko from Hearts of Oak.”
Ollenu was a pale shadow of himself as Kotok played Heats in the league meeting in March.
